You may recall the Dancing Girl (pic), an Indus Valley Civilisation sculpture in bronze, from your history textbook in middle school. Now imagine it standing beside a 4,400-year-old gypsum statue of a woman from Iraq. That is exactly how things are at the National Museum in Delhi, which is currently hosting the exhibition ‘India and the World: A History in Nine Stories’, a magnificent showcase of over 200 objects covering trade, religion, the rise of empires and more. These are exceptional artefacts and art pieces from the collections of the National Museum itself; British Museum, London; Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, Mumbai; and over 20 museums and private collections across India. It is a perfect illustration of India’s influence on global culture. The exhibition is open throughout May and June from 10am to 6pm daily (except Monday) and an entry ticket costs the same as a museum ticket (20). Visit
